It’s gray today…
and it keeps getting grayer.
My heart swells,
labored in prayer
wept, I have
your mercy my slayer-
as I walk the halls
wondering to myself
where will it end?
My silent pleas
rise into the gray,
I know not what to say-
I demand justice,
knowing full well,
it will not come.
I’m choking on pain
of tears from
My eyes see
and I weep…
for the mother mourning 19 year old son, taken too soon,
What have you done?
for the baby beaten, broken beyond repair- just 4 months old…
Why don’t you care?
for the small dog pummeled, restrained by love-
What the hell were you even thinking of?
I catch a glimpse of the cruelty
bubbling over, onto the unsuspecting,
It never changes, is nothing new-
only gets more graphic as we are able to know it all…
I’m tired of the knowing!
I’m wearied by the endless stories
of injustice, cruelty, hate.
Tired of excuses layered upon layer,
layered over all.
I want justice.
I want justice…
I want justice!
Weeping is our only comfort,
until the restoration of all things-
Until we fly once more
as Eagle’s wings.
I long to fly on those Eagle’s wings.
Don’t look to the politicians,
don’t look to the spiritual leaders.
Don’t look to your neighbor!
Don’t be deceived into having a hope for your children
apart from the Hope that IS Justice.
The Hope that is a Who,
who never fails, who is merciful,
who is goodness and Everlasting Light.
Who will return again, on darkest night.
All is not lost, Hope will not fail us,
though we will fail…
All is not lost.
Stop pointing your finger
see your hand in the mix,
see your guilt, His power-
the only sure fix.
Seek your freedom first, because chains
cannot bring, the hope of freedom,
for which we all sing.
The hope of freedom only Truth brings.
The hope for gray
the Light only
